Am I about to have even more Aiptasia?

Laser's don't work. I had a conversation about them with the guy who originally posted about it on RC. He said that in the beginning it seemed to work, but now looking back and knowing what he knows now. IT DOESN'T WORK.

You can only get the smaller ones close to the glass and the others will just pull into the rocks when they start to get burned and you see them back out in a week.

He told everybody don't waste your money because they're not worth it.

His post on RC was called "A real Aiptasia Laser" if anybody is interested and wants to cross check me. He posted on the thread too.
I agree. The laser only works when you have a clear shot. I find the best results when removing the dead “aptasia sludge” with a pipette. Turn off the flow as well. Water cools things fast!

I recently saw this video and it gave me more hope and satisfaction! I heard they didn't work well, but I'd say this is evidence that they do.

Note: One thing you will notice in the video is that "Just like with a laser" they will pull into a crack or crevice and cannot be nuked. In this case...under a zip tie.

Go to 2:00 in this video and watch him nuke about 10 of them: JUST WATCH THE ZIP TIE!!

Doubtful. They're so pretty though and I heard a guy actually saying he loves them in his large SPS tank.
I liked them too until they started smothering my zoa gardens overtook one of my Acan colonies too.....now they're the bane of my existence LOL!

I saw on another post where someone kept them in their tanks because he believed they polished the water. Think I saw it in the thread that Jonathan started back in November in the Marine Life Forum.
